    Automated flash chromatography systems have helped synthetic chemists speed up their synthetic research. One major advancement with these systems over the past 15 or so years has been the addition of photo-diode array ultraviolet (PDA-UV) UV detectors with which chemists can detect and fractionate using one, two, or multiple wavelengths. Enabling detection and fractionation with multiple wavelengths increases the likelihood that target and by-product compounds will be isolated with increased purity.
